Congratulations! You've eaten twice your weight in meat, veg and sugar and lived to see another day. This calls for a celebration and preferably one that involves leaving the house. Come on, you know you want to… These ace events ought to entice you out.

Be at one with nature: Christmas at Kew Gardens

Around this time of year, Kew spruces up its magnificent grounds with twinkling lights, vintage fairground rides, food and drink stalls and a Santa's Grotto, naturally.

If you haven't had time to see this laugh-out-loud production by ‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone yet, now's your chance. Take advantage of the holiday period to have a chuckle at the play that we gave a very respectable four stars to.

We're not talking ice, either. If you fear falling on the freezing rinks that set up all over the city throughout this festive period, then stay warm and dry with good ol' fashioned four-wheeled skating at Bump's disco.

The barmy, long-haired comic, who you'll recognise from your telly boxes, is back on form with fanciful musings and musical deconstructions in his latest show, 'Limboland'.

Satisfy your sweet tooth: Hotel Chocolat Chocolate Tasting Experience

Not only will this experience involve eating chocolates and truffles, but you'll be doing it while rotating on the London Eye. You'll also get a couple of glasses of fizz and a goodie bag to take home after.

Delve into the male wardrobe: Men's Fashion Heritage Tours

Take a two-hour guided tour through London's tailoring centre (yes, including the stylish Savile Row) and learn about the history of men's fashion and what us Brits had to do with it.
